Good food , good fun and spectacular views

We visited the Quays restaurant in Cobh yesterday for lunch. We sat outside in the sun and watched all the activity on the river. Had a lovely meal and fantastic service. Really enjoyed the "ball hop " with the waiter. Well worth a visit. Deena

We visited the Titanic Experience, and decided to have a bite before we left Cobh. Our guide at The Titanic Experience recommended The Quays. The restaurant was clean, the food good. We each had the calamari, which were cooked to perfection. The accompanying salads and bread were also good. Perhaps unfairly, the service was spotty, but I must add that... More

The food and service here was excellent. We sat at the bar and had an amazing view of the water. Ordered drinks and an appetizer since it was between lunch and dinner. Food was outstanding. As we were waiting for our food we saw other dishes leave the kitchen. Everything looked delicious especially the fish and chips. We regretted that... More

Really great location right on the water of the Cobh harbour. Food was delicious and the staff were very kind. Prices were a bit high, but it was probably worth it for the view and food

We're in port on a cruise and this is not only the closest restaurant/pub but also one of the finest we've found in Ireland! Clean, friendly and reasonable prices make this a great stop for lunch or dinner! Bar staff and restaurants staff are great!

We ate here on granted a busy Sunday afternoon. We received our starter which was beautiful prawns very quickly but then waited 30 minutes before our main courses arrived. Each time we looked up a different member of the waiting staff was serving around us so no one seemed to realise that we were still waiting. The food when it... More
